Boost Your Immune System and Lower Your Stress
The holidays can be a very stressful time for all of us. One disease that can be precipitated by stress is shingles (also known as Herpes Zoster) due to lowered immunity. The holiday season is the time to be mindful, get plenty of sleep, not skip any meals, stay hydrated, and avoid excess sugar and fat and include fruits and vegetables into your diet. Regular acupuncture treatments during the holidays are a great way to decreases stress as well as boost immunity
Shingles is caused by a reactivation of the Varicella Zoster virus and can affect any nerve in the body. Symptoms vary according to the immunity of the patient and can be mild to severe. Symptoms usually start with nerve pain, followed by a very painful rash. Shingles can last 2-4 weeks and nerve pain can continue for years in some people.
One treatment that shines above the rest for shingles is acupuncture in combination with Chinese herbal medicine. The sooner you are treated the better for the best outcome. The symptoms in most cases, however, even in chronic cases can be treated successfully with Chinese medicine.
Regular acupuncture can prevent and treat shingles by keeping the immune system well-functioning, decreasing bacterial and viral loads and increasing pain killing endorphins in the brain.
In the event of a shingles outbreak, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can greatly shorten the recovery time (generally to one week) and prevent the chances of long term complications.
